2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
With the V8 this vehicle is a pretty decent overall package. It's definitely much more refined than past JGC's, however it would be ideal if it had a smooth revving multi-valve engine. Good ride, good sight lines, just wish the build quality was better. I most likely will not buy another JGC as there are better available SUV's especially from the Japanese brands.
Comfortable seats, ideal step-in height, quality designed door handles.
Quality. In first year I've experienced a dead fan motor, out of round tires, stalling, and warped front brakes. Definitely not the quality of Honda, Toyota, or Acura's I've owned. The engine could certainly be smoother too.
